Growler from the brewery. Clearish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of biscuit dough, nuts and herbal tea. Flavor is rich toasty malt, toffee and a medium hop bitterness. Medium body with a clean bitter finish. Nice brown ale. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 29, 2012
Draft at Tap Root Beer and Mead Social: Poured a chalky brown with a thin tan head. Aroma was malty with some nuttiness. Taste is sweet malts, similar to the aroma with nuttiness and just simple hops. Very smooth light brown and very drinkable. jsquire (4563) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Sampled at the ’09 Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival. Copper brown color with a foamy tan head. Nose of malt powder and the sack the grains came in. Thin malty sweetness with some nice grains. Easy drinking brown, but nothing too exciting. DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 8, 2008
18-Jan-08 (Draft: 2008 Great Alaskan Beer and Barley Wine Festival in Anchorage, AK) Just a couple of minutes left until this festival session is over, and I’ve tried all the barley wines I care to sample tonight, so I’ll end on a less burly beer. Roasty, chocolaty, toasty and moderately bitter from hops, this is a well-balanced brown. The roasty nose has a hint of tartness. Fairly dry on the palate with medium body. Amber in color and showing some haze. The bubbly, light-tan head settles to a thin film and wide ring. A nice brown ale with good flavor, and despite having this beer after a number of barley wines, it’s a satisfying end to this session for me.

20-Jul-05 (Draft: Café Amsterdam in Anchorage, AK) A serviceable brown ale, dry, lightly roasty, a bit fruity, and moderately bitter. Lightly roasty and hoppy nose is a bit yeasty and fruity. Medium body with a boring mouthfeel. Ruddy brown color, topped by a small, tan, bubbly head that leaves scattered ribbons of lace on the glass. Average. (7, 3, 6, 3, 13 = 3.2)
